"Love is a Deserter" as written by and Jamie/mosshart Hince....
One eye in the sun, one in the night
Sleep tight, sleepwalk like honey, honey
Oh my, capital I love you
Put it in a letter honey
I could kiss you underwater
I could in the rear view mirror
X.O., took my heart and crossed it
Set it down and lost it
Set it down and lost it
Say it again

Get the guns out, get the guns out
Get the guns out, get the guns out
Get the guns out, get the guns out

Your love is a deserter
Your love is a deserter

One eye in the sun, one eye in the night
Sleep tight, sleepwalk like honey, honey
When you want me, you got me where you want me again
Say it again!

If it's personal, say it again!
Get the guns out, get the guns out
Get the guns out, get the guns out
Get the guns out, get the guns out

Your love is a deserter
Your love is a deserter

Get the guns out, get the guns out
Get the guns out, get the guns out
Get the guns out, get the guns out
Get the guns out

You got one eye as white as a bride
The other eye, as black as the devil
It's alright!

Oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh!
Oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh!

Crossed wires, sparking a little
Start a house fire with us in the middle
It's alright!

Oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh!
Oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh!

Get the guns out, get the guns out
Get the guns out, get the guns out
Get the guns out, get the guns out

Your love is a deserter
Your love is a deserter
Your love is a deserter
Your love is a deserter

    I could, in the rearview mirror"
    Restaurant blouse: "We could see her underwater, we could in the rearview mirror"

    General CommentAlso
    Love is a deserter: You got one eye as white as a bride. The other eye, as black as the devil.
    Icky thump (the white stripes): She had one white eye,
    One black stare.

    I don't know how I notice these things. But I'd love to find out the answers :)
